    I wonder… How is it even possible for people not to be vaccinated?

The Bus Eireann COVID-19 Update page says that you will have to wear a face mask, in line with Government guidance. (Unless you are exempt) There are no requirements for testing or vaccination.

However, if you are staying overnight in Northern Island, you are advised to take a LFD test:

If you're travelling from within the Common Travel Area (CTA) and staying overnight in Northern Ireland, you should take a rapid lateral flow device test (LFD) before you begin your journey.

You should only travel if the test is negative.

You should also take an LFD test on days two and eight of your stay.

You should not travel to Northern Ireland if you have COVID-19 symptoms, or have received a positive COVID-19 result.

You will also need to fill in a passenger locator form if you have been outside the Common Travel Area (United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, and Channel Islands) in the past 10 days.
